Question about Acer Aspire 5610-4648 Notebook

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working

Whenever I record stuff on my webcam, there is no sound. I know it's not a volume issue cause volume works on other things like youtube and music. How can I fix my microphone? I saw your answer to someone else's question, but I didn't know where the "my computer" button was. Thanks!

    i have the same issue. Whenever i record a video, i cannot hear any sound when i play it. I was able to use the mic though but only when i chat using a hotmail account like my friend's. Voice chat is grayed out when im using a yahoo account.Meaning to say the mic feature functions ONLY when you are chatting from hotmail to hotmail. It does not work when using yahoo messenger to yahoo messenger, ym to hotmail and vice versa. Is this fixable or this is bug?

For Windows users with AOA 150-Bb model: Download Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772 (Size: 50.5 Mb) available at ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_150/driver/Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772.zip Installing it solves the problem, both builtin and external mics working correctly.

On AOA 150-Ab migrated to Windows XP Professional the Driver Audio_Realtek_5.10.0.5628_XPx86 (Size: 42.6 Mb) seems that works fine.

All drivers available at http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads_gd.html by selecting different models different drivers are shown also. (AOA 150 for v5.10.0.5628, AOD for v5.10.0.5767...)

SOURCE: My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working

in control panel, click on Sounds and Audio Devices, click on the Voice Tab, Under Voice recording, click on volume --- make sure the mute box is not checked under microphone. If it is, uncheck it. A faster way to do this is to double-click the little speaker icon in your systray in the lower right corner of your screen - right before where the time is shown. If the mute box is unchecked, make sure your mic jack is fully inserted into the correct receptacle.  DID THIS HELP YOU?  Please post your feedback.

This solution works for the Windows XP version. Go to msconfig.exe, then the Startup tab. UNCHECK rthdcpl and restart. Realtek driver doesn't load, but who cares...the microphone works now.

Hello boannarrow,

Please try the following:
Click Start > Control Panel
If the title of your control panel says "Pick a Category", click "Switch to classic view" on the left hand side of he screen. Otherwise, just follow the steps below:
Open "Sounds and audio devices"
Go to the "Audio" tab
Click the "Volume" button under the "sound recording" section
Make sure the checkbox by "Select" under Mic Volume is checked, and raise the volume of your microphone here.
Click OK until you are back in the control panel.
Try your microphone again. If it still does not work, let us know so we can continue to help.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Audio on Dell Webcam Central And voice record isn't working


I have a Dell 1545 with Dell web cam central & I've had this issue. The problem is that Dell web cam central installs it's own microphone settings onto your laptop called something like Dell web cam Live!. This isn't the built in microphone in my laptop & maybe not yours either. You have to change the settings for your computer system & Dell web cam central. Go to start> control panel> sound> recording .. on mine there is an option for Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" ... that is the built in mic. You want that for your default & apply it. Also .. as a side note .. I disabled the web cam central Live! microphone completely from this window. Then open Dell web cam central & go to the "Record Video's" option. In the middle of this is an orange button with a video camera icon. Next to this on the same button is a little arrow pointing down .. click that. Under microphone .. choose Microphone "High Definition Audio Device" just like the sound option in control panel. I've done this & it's completely fixed. I can record videos with sound & use my built in mic in voice/video chat.

Samson G-Track recording volume issue


Try using a computer with a dedicated sound card, not an onboard sound chip. A condenser mike can't provide very much power on its own, and requires power from the attached receiver/amplifier.

My microphone on my acer aspire one isnt working


I had the same issue. This is what I found. It seems the Realtek audio and the Microsoft volume drivers are conflicting with each other. If you look at the bottom right (next to clock) you should see the usual grey speaker icon (Microsoft Master Volume controller) and you may also see a reddish speaker (Realtek audio) icon. This should indicate that both are controlling your audio.

If you click [start] - [run], type: msconfig and click [ok]. Click on [startup] tab at top. Look under startup item and uncheck: RTHDCPL then [apply], [ok] and restart your netbook. After it reboots the only audio icon that should appear is the grey speaker (microsoft master volume controller). Your mic should work now. Go to sound recorder and test. You may also need to upgrade to the lasted audio driver from the acer site but try shutting down Realtek first.

Logitech sound problem


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
